Polar atmospheric processes are an essential component of global circulation, significantly sensitive to climate change, and directly affect the formation of the weather regime in lower latitudes. However, the properties of clouds and precipitation in polar regions remain to be understudied due to the lack of field, aerological and satellite measurement data. It is also why the parameterization of clouds and precipitation in climate and forecast models remains a source of errors, making it impossible to obtain reliable information about the state of the polar ecosystem in general and the atmosphere in particular. Therefore, a thorough study of cloud and precipitation formation processes by the high spatial and temporal resolution regional simulations and their verification with the measurement data, as well as assessing their climate projections, can improve the understanding of atmospheric processes in the polar regions and the quality of numerical modelling, including climate modelling, in the future.

Join Ukrainian polar researcher Anastasiia Chyhareva to find out meteorological studies of the mesoscale and microphysical features of cloud and precipitation processes on the Ukrainian Antarctic Research station “Akademik Vernadsky” help solve these issues.

Anastasiia Chyhareva was born in 1995 in Kyiv. In 2012, she received a full general education. From September 2013 to June 2019, she studied at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, the Faculty of Geography, the Department of Meteorology and Climatology. In 2017, she received a bachelor degree in “Hydrometeorology” (specialization: meteorology), and in 2018 received a master degree with honors in the specialty “Earth Sciences” (educational program: Meteorology) and qualified as a junior researcher (meteorology), meteorologist. She studied for six months at Uppsala University under the ERASMUS+ KA1 international scientific mobility program during her masters studies.

During her graduate studies, she completed an internship at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Boulder, Colorado, USA. She was also a participant of the 26th and 27th Ukrainian Antarctic expeditions. She participated in resumption of periodic radiosoundings observations at the Akademik Vernadsky station to study the vertical structure of the atmosphere in the region of the Argentine Islands during the international project Year of Polar Prediction (Year of Polar Prediction) in March-April 2022.
She is working in the Department of Applied Meteorology and Climatology of the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Institute of the State Service of Emergency of Ukraine and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine from 2016 to the present. Since 2019, she also works with the National Antarctic Scientific Center in the Department of Atmospheric Physics and Geospace . In February 2024 became a PhD in Earth Sciences with thesis topic “Clouds and precipitation in the Antarctic Peninsula region: microphysics, mesoscale processes and climate projections to the end of the 21st century”.
